Rail Delivery Group

We aim to recruit the right people into the right jobs at the right time.

As well as helping us to meet our immediate needs, we believe this is an approach that encourages people to stay with us and develop their careers.

Anyone who meets the requirements of the job is eligible for employment within the Rail Delivery Group, irrespective of age, disability, employment status, gender, health, marital status, sexual preference, membership or non-membership of a trade union, nationality, race, religion, social class or other non-job-relevant personal characteristics.

We make every effort to eliminate discrimination, direct and indirect, from our recruitment and selection process. Where applicable, reasonable adjustments will be made at each stage of the recruitment and selection process as required to reduce any potential barriers faced by applicants and to give them equal access to employment opportunities.

Employee networks

Aspire logo

The Rail Delivery Group (RDG) brings together the companies that run Britain’s railway into a single team with one goal - to deliver a better railway for you and your community.

Our employee network groups support this, by providing opportunities to meet and socialise with like-minded people; a chance to get involved in mentoring, share best practice and gain experiences and develop skills you might not get the chance to do in your day job.

Disability Awareness Network

Our Disability Awareness Network ran its first “Disability Awareness Week” in November 2019, which aimed to highlight how a range of disabilities can affect employees. It now hosts regular coffee mornings with exernal speakers.

The group also works to ensure colleagues with visible, or invisible, disabilities have access to all the adjustments they may need to enable them to work effectively.

Our values

About working here

Our values of Accountability, Support, Partnership, Inclusion, Respect and Excellence (ASPIRE) support our vision, shape our culture and are the essence of RDG's identity.

Our values are an integral part of both our recruitment and performance review processes. We celebrate colleagues who demonstrate the values through:

  • e-Cards: a nomination scheme for colleagues who have demonstrated one or more of our values
  • ASPIRE Gold: a monthly recognition scheme for our star performers
  • Annual ASPIRE awards: celebrating outstanding demonstration of our values

Our vision

Our vision determines our strategic direction and also reminds us all of why we do what we do and the value we add to the rail industry.

Our mission

Our mission is to add value by bringing together all passenger and freight operators with Network Rail, HS2; and their supply chains to provide further services and support to groups of members.
